Its latitude, at the southern most point in the Iberian Peninsula, and its magnificent climate, have made this, for millennia, a coveted prize for Tyrians, Tartesians, Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths and Arabs.
We cannot let the opportunity pass of enjoying the seafood in the coast of Cadiz, this seafood has been benefitted by all the civilizations that have passed through here throughout the history. We'll find establishments of fried and boiled fish and seafood in towns like Puerto de Santa María, of great maritime tradition, where we'll be able to sit down to eat or take away in paper cones ('cartuchos') while we go for a stroll.
Recommended places to eat:
- El Romerijo in the Port of Santa Maria on José Antonio Romero Zarazaga street, Nº1
- Restaurante Freiduría Cervecería Las Flores in Cádiz (Plaza Topete 4)
The waiters only serve the drinks, the orders of the seafood are made by taking a number and paying whatever we order. We recommend the boiled crab legs and the fried spawn, a delicacy that we can only find in Cadiz.
